Woodworker: Isaac Hillson
This chair was part of Indiana University of Pennsylvania’s second exhibition on the Adirondack theme. Professor Christopher Weiland and director Steve Loar invited students and alumni from recognized furniture and design programs, challenging them to explore and redesign the century-old Adirondack chair. Hillson’s chair merges two typical outdoor images, the wheelbarrow and the Adirondack chair. The wheel turns on a dowel, which is glued into larger dowels at both ends to keep the wheel in place. The seat supports run from the front to the back at an angle, where they fit over the larger dowels.
